Pinterest is the easiest and most valuable way to share style inspiration with your Stylist. It shows us what looks you love, seasonal wardrobe needs and a ton about your personal style. While leaving notes & feedback are integral to getting your best Fix, our creative Stylists love a visual representation of your style.
Keep reading for ways to maximize Pinterest & your Stitch Fix experience! Can’t wait to set up your Style Board? Scroll down for step-by-step instructions on how to get started.
WHAT YOU SHOULD PIN
Your Pinterest Style Board gives your Stylist a true look at what items & looks you’re coveting. Your Stylist takes your Style Board very seriously when he/she styles you (though they’re probably having fun, too!). So make sure you’re pinning trends, patterns & styles that you would actually like to see in your Fix. Here are some suggestions for what to share:
- Your overall sense of style—how you dress and/or how you’d like to dress
- What fashion inspires you—colors, patterns, prints, etc.
- Clothing & accessories you’re looking for in your next Fix
- Trends you’re interested in trying
- Seasonal items needed for your closet
- Your celebrity crushes, whose style you admire, from our Celebrity Board
Tip: Make sure to leave captions on each pin to communicate with your Stylist. Tell him/her what you like about each outfit! Is it the fit, color, pattern or overall look? Let us know!
Everyone has unique style that can be visualized through a Pinterest board. You can show us more about your personality, your style and wardrobe goals through imagery. Not to mention, it’s fun! Here are two examples of Style Boards, and how your Stylist can use them to determine the best items to include in your Fix.
